Examples?  OK:

There goes computer science education....  That's an immediate
contradiction you can get them on: if kids need a clearance to go to
college and major in CS (or to enter the labs, anyway), how are we
going to attract (let alone qualify) them in the numbers required to
deal with the "dire shortage" of technically trained personnel?

And don't limit yourself to software.  Anything that can be used to
access physical bits at some point in the hardware pipeline would also
be prohibited.  You need permission from the Secretary of Commerce to
own an oscilliscope or a soldering iron.

Now that is FUD to go right up there with "software piracy"!
